Moving on from the CJ Photography debacle (FYI he’s back and stronger than ever and is kicking rocks still or something).

Vincent and Tyler Tree apparently run this business which is photography, cinematography and DJ services.  They don’t appear to have a Facebook Page nor much of an online presence so I don’t know if this is just a business that doesn’t get any business or they are just flying under the radar but regardless, their portfolio is made up of stolen images.

The videos are stolen as well, of course.

Their website is down but not their vimeo or You Tube channels.

Update 1/2/14 @ 12:07PM EST

They’ve removed the stolen art and replaced it with a video and possible screen grabs that appear to be their own.  However, the words?  They aren’t.

    The name “Dream Wedding” is quite appropriate… because if you hire them to shoot your wedding, you’ll be dreaming of what you COULD have had if only you had hired someone who didn’t lie about what they were capable of producing.

    The main site now seems to feature only their own stuff, which, from the looks of it, comes from just 2 weddings which they probably booked with their stolen material before it was taken down. As expected, it’s mediocre quality at best, and nowhere near as “stunning” (the word they constantly use to describe their work) as the stolen examples.

    The blog is composed of content not generally their own, but they do seem to be giving credit to the original creators.

    All-in-all, I’d say this outfit probably began when a couple of kids bought some 5D Mark-whatever bodies and figured that their dues was then paid. They needed content, but had none due to their inexperience. No problem… stealing is much easier than learning! They just didn’t count on PhotoStealers!
